israel's bombing of iran? >> we should use every political vehicle available to us to keep iran from becoming a nuclear capability state but that's as far as i'm willing to go in terms of discussing this matter while on foreign soil. >> reporter: israel the second stop on romney the three-nation tour. sunday help visited the holy wall, the holiest site in judaism and met with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. a friend of romney's more than 30 years. >> welcome to jerusalem. >> reporter: today romney is looking to raise $1 million in a fund-raiser in jerusalem. one attendee who flew in from the united states, a billionaire casino magnate who pledged to spend up to $100 million of his own money to help defeat president obama. just last month he made a $10 million donation to the pro-romney superpac, restore our future. a rare chance to interact with mr. adelson at romney's speech but didn't discuss much. >> many response on the speech? >> loved it. >> reporter: the reaction romney got from quite a few. one donor described it as a lovefest. today romney heads off to poland meeting with

northern syria and brings us the latest. >> reporter: fighting continued to rage in aleppo, syria's commercial can't. shelling neighborhoods taken by opposition forces desperately clinging on calling for heavier weapons. we crossed into syria early this morning, our first stop was a city which had seen heavy violence last month outside aleppo. there hardly seemed to be a single building left untouched. and virtually a ghost town. also remarkable was traveling all day across northern syria, we didn't see a single government tank or troop. which tells you how far these opposition forces have come. but until they take a city like aleppo they have a long way to go. >>> reporting there from inside syria. two big developments in syria. one, the chemical weapons, removed, transported, eyes of the world wondering if assad will use them, when, how? and the use of helicopters. the first in the last couple weeks. bombing his own people here. and defense secretary, panetta said using helicopters against his own people was a nail in his coffin. talk getting very, very tough. wondering if assad
, that uses a clip from a speech where he said, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. his campaign reinforced his defense in a new web video. >> romney's not telling the truth about what the president said, and is taking the president's words out of context. >> i want to bring in "washington post" opinion writer and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart and the atlantic's national political reporter, molly ball. good morning to both of you. and jonathan, you've heard this message before from the president. but perhaps this one time it wasn't expressed in the best way. what do you think here? is this something that the obama campaign will need to worry about going forward? >> well, clearly they're concerned about it, at least, because the president addressed it in his event yesterday. so, you know, it's one of those things that was maybe inartfully said, but, you know, fundamentally, it was true. and i believe it's the obama campaign that has put out a commercial or at least i've seen the clips, of mitt romney saying virtually the exact same thing to, i believe it was to
't need a special council. we're going to have a couple of u.s. attorneys, one from d.c. and one from maryland, they're going to investigate which some say is political. clearly they work for the attorney general that works for the president. anyway, we'll play you -- we'll give you both the quotation. here first is senator feinstein on monday essentially taking aim at the white house for spilling the political beans, the secret beans. >> i think the white house has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks. i don't know specifically where. but they're, i think, they have to begin to understand that and do something about it. >> and then up next, she again another statement just yesterday and we have this one for you, too. i stated that i did not believe the president leaked classified information. i shouldn't have speculated beyond that because of the fact of the matter is i don't know the source of the leaks. but, you know, this really brings up the issue of transparency as well which is something that the obama administration has promised from day one and if you'll
they'll both be wishing the u.s. olympic teams well. a little awkward, perhaps? >> i think jonathan is right, this is not the place for politics when you're attending the olympic ceremonies and you're on foreign soil. romney, of course, will be getting a lot of attention for his role in the olympics in 2002, which is generally a positive story for him. i think he'll be evoking a lot of those memories as he attends the olympics in london. i don't think michelle obama is going to take the occasion to beat him up for any of his other foreign policy or for his record on the olympics. i think this is going to be a moment of comity. and let's not forget that there's another reason for this trip for romney. he's going to be collecting a lot of checks as well. it's a big fund-raising trip for him as well overseas. >> that's right. some fund-raising going on there. thank you very much, molly ball and jonathan capehart, as always. >>> two survivors of the aurora movie theater shooting have been released from the hospital in colorado today, but there are still about 12 people in the hospital w
assault in the u.s. we're an extremely violent country, it's true, but look at this. we're not nearly so violent as we used to be. our assault rate peaked in the late 1970s, and awful events like aurora not withstandings harx been falling continuously ever since. within america, the south is by far the most viole region. it has the most deaths from assault. then comes the wests where the shootings happens followed by the midwest and northeast. thanks again to karen for this chart. also, gun ownership is on the decline. the percentage of american ho e households that say they own a pistol or a shotgun is about half it was. and the most recent numbers from gallup which aren't on the graph have show an uptick in gun ownership. we don't kknow if that's a tick blip. this map, which we made with data from the new england journal of medicine compares a number of suicides by gun ownership rates. it's four times as high in states with a lot of firearms. even when you factor in suicide by other means. any means at all, states with a high rate of gunopership still experience twice as many suicides

[ cheering ] that's the choice in this election. that's why i'm running for a second term. >> eliot: what is working here is the romney campaign cynicism and lack of ethics by tearing the president's comments out of context so they have an entirely different meaning. president obama said h
